obama's re-elected that. s will start cooperates and working with him. i talked to a few today. they're not so certain. the one thing that's true is right off the bat if the president is re-elected, there's a lot of serious issues on his plate. the bush tax cuts, the debt limit will come back up in 2013. they will be forced to work together no matter who wins the presidency. all that being said, though, the thing that i found very interesting since the republicans came into power in the house in 2010 has been the lack of communication between speaker boehner, president obama, cantor, biden. they've had some conversations, but obama doesn't call boehner regularly. they don't socialize. they had that golf meeting. they tried to get the debt deal together. that sort of went away. i suspect if you have a president obama getting re-elected, you will see a lbj-style sort of trying to work the other side, work from congress. if there's anything he could have learned from the mistakes of his first term, that would be it. but this idea that republicans are go sing, that's not going to happen.
